Umm, no. It does not work like this.
Your NT4 PDC is a domain controller of one domain (say DOMAIN1).
The Win2K server running Active Directory is a domain controller of its own SEPARATE domain (say, DOMAIN2).
A Window Domain Controller (NT4,Win2K, Win2K3) CANNOT be a Domain Controller in 2 different domains!
If you need to keep the NT4 domain, the set up a NT4 BDC for your NT4 domain, to provide failover.
